Overview

Monitoring and feedback loops from production is a critical tenant in DevOps for measuring performance, runtime errors, statistics, and changes. In the SecDevOps world, security teams can take advantage of DevOps monitoring tools to increase security visibility, identify anomalies, and respond swiftly to real time attacks.

Cloud providers are offering powerful infrastructure, development, and application continuous monitoring services that generate a wealth of data. But, building continuous security monitoring on top of the data can be challenging. Where are the log files? What is the log file format? What security events are captured? How do we display meaningful metrics? Can we detect and defend in real time?

This talk will introduce attendees to a realistic AWS environments monitoring and active defense system and discuss real data collected during a war game exercise. Afterwards, we will walk through the postmortem, review the alerts raised during the incident, determine if there were any surprises, and identify opportunities to improve the system. Attendees will walk away with actionable techniques for building an active defense framework to help protect your organizations cloud resources.
